What you need to know

  • Build 22000.184 is now out in the Beta Channel.
  • It includes only two new fixes.
  • No new features are expected for the first version of Windows 11.

Microsoft is back with another Windows 11 fixes patch for Insiders in the Beta Channel. We're now at a point where all the cumulative updates rolling out in the Beta Channel containt only fixes and under the hood improvements, as Microsoft has now finalized what will and won't be shipping with the first version of Windows 11.

Today's build has only two fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where the new learn more info in OOBE about Windows Hello wasn't translated for non-English languages.
  • Fixed an issue where a small set of languages were missing translations across the UI in Windows 11.

Unfortunately, there's still a long list of known issues. Hopefully Microsoft can get around to fixing all of this before October 5:

  • We're investigating reports from Insiders in the Beta Channel where after upgrading to Windows 11, they are not seeing the new Taskbar and the Start menu doesn't work. To workaround this if you are impacted, please try going to Windows Update > Update history, uninstalling the latest cumulative update for Windows, and the reinstall it by checking for updates.
  • We're working on a fix for an issue that is causing some Surface Pro X's to bugcheck with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.
  • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
  • System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
  • The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
  • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the "Windows Explorer" process, and open the search panel again.
  • Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
  • The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
  • Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
  • We continue to work to improve search relevance in the Store.
  • Within Windows Sandbox, the language input switcher does not launch after clicking the switcher icon on the Taskbar. As a workaround, users can switch their input language via any of the following hardware keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift, Ctrl + Shift, or Win + Space (the third option is available only if Sandbox is full-screened).
  • Within Windows Sandbox, the IME context menu does not launch after clicking the IME icon in the Taskbar.

  • I don't know...Seems faster
  • Why so few fixes so close to release date and with so many acknowledged bugs left!?
  • So I'm on the 'Dev Insider' with unsupported hardware but I still got it...?
  • Based on what I've seen on a couple of sites, that may be changing for you soon. Others have said that after this release they were booted out of Dev and Beta Insider because of unsupported hardware.
  • I noticed something strange about this build. Not sure if anyone else is seeing it but all of my taskbar buttons are now shifted to the right. It seems like the start button is in the center and the rest of the buttons are to the right of it. It used to center all of the buttons.
